Tell us a bit about you.

After completing an agribusiness degree and looking into international food markets, I have settled down into a lovely little job teaching Agriculture at a Brisbane high school. I have a passion for teaching students about where their food comes from and giving them the skills themselves to grow and select foods that are good for them and sustainably sourced. In my down time, I am studying Psychology, mainly so I can bring my dog into work with me on a daily basis.

Why YFM?

YFM helps me become involved in the greater community and connect with like-minded individuals to spread a positive message about production. 

What is your favourite food memory?

Baking cookies with my grandma. She was a rubbish cook but an absolute innovator, she used to burn the bottoms without fail and tell us to eat them upside down. They would taste terrible either way but that wasn’t the point. I remember that big messy kitchen, covered in flour, with the smell of cinnamon in the air after school. I love how food has the ability to create such treasured memories.

Last meal you would eat before the apocalypse?

Something with lots of fertile and easy to carry seeds….who knows, I might survive and damned if I won’t be growing some crops after all the chaos dies down.
